Total Activity Accurate if students are viewing videos posted in Canvas

Community Member


My question is about the total activity area in "people". Will that activity time continue if students remain on one canvas page watching videos. 

For example, if I have 2 hours of lectures for students on one canvas page and students watch them all will 2 hours be added to their total time. Said another way, if they only have one hour of "Total Activity" can I accurately assume there is no way they could have watched those two hours of videos (there is no "speed option" on the videos)? 

Thank you.
